    These aren't the best pics, he didn't want to stand still. This is supposed to be a Salmon Faverolle cockerel. What say you? Thanks!!

    Looks like a male Salmon Faverolle to me. He's got white skin, single comb, muffs, feathered legs, and I think I see a 5th toe in that second picture. He does seem to have a blue dilute gene, though, since his chest is dark grey and not black.

    If he has that fifth toe, he is a Faverolle cockerel.

    Young Faverolle cockerel. If you keep feeding him well, he'll get big and round with pretty colors not common in chicken breeds.

    He is a blue salmon cockerel. Bred to salmon hens you will get 50% blue salmon and 50% salmon. If you have blue salmon hens you could end up with some splash salmons.
